Creativity Boards

Four large blackboards are scattered around the room. The public is encouraged to draw with chalk in various colours -in the form of graffiti- anything that has been inspired at that specific moment, and is in relation to medicine, anatomy, humanity, and nature. There are no other restrictions. The participants may draw figures inspired by images accessed live, online, at that moment. The project is considered as an integrated entity. The action is based on the Cybernetic concepts of Nudging, Stigmergy, and Spreading Activation, and aims to develop creativity based on previous visual stimuli, which leaves traces that guide others to create towards a certain, self-organising direction.
